PRS Foundation - Open Fund for Organisations

Aims/priorities: The Open Fund for Organisations supports high-quality new music projects and not programmes. Projects must involve the creation, performance and promotion of new music and enable songwriters, composers, artists, bands and performers of all backgrounds to develop creatively and professionally. The Foundation will prioritise expenditure that will have a direct and obvious impact on music creator development.

Projects must fit with all three of the Foundation's funding priorities:
